The roof of the house – an important part of its architecture. On its size and artistic appearance depends on the silhouette of buildings. Therefore it is necessary to combine, merge the architecture of the building, conceived and built for long, with such plastic, constantly changing living material like plants. So what are the main problems of the modern garden on an artificial basis? Despite the fact that constructive solutions to this have been developed sufficient detail, the main problem remains the compatibility of general interior of the house, the roof of functional tasks and the cultivation of her plants. Roof – top of the building envelope. She performs and carrier, and heat insulating function, and its top element – roof – it provides protection from rain, snow, wind and air temperature drops.

Roofs can be warm, combining the protective function of insulation, and cold, without insulation. In this case, they must have a slope to drain rain. Flat roofs are considered a small bias (at least, however, 2%), in order to provide drainage. So-called "pitched" roofs can be sloped to 20% or more. Under such roofs are arranged loft or an attic floor.

It is clear that the type of roof, its slope and constructive solution of a roof depends on the possibility of its use. The roof can be operated simply, intended for purposes not related to the device, the garden, and it basically refers to the flat roofs. In modern buildings often arrange on top of driveways and parking for cars, and on tall buildings – even landing sites for helicopters.
